Biscoff Cookie Dough Balls*

Let’s do this the Friday way.

Down and dirty, just the facts.

Brody is absolutely freaking adorable.

I don’t care if you like dogs or not, Brody in a sweater is heartwarming.

Tonight I am having this man take me to see Paranormal Activity. For two reasons:

1. I have a love of scary movies, even bad ones. (With the first Jeepers Creepers being one of my all time favorites.)

2. Jorge is Puerto Rican. Puerto Ricans believe in all that superstition and evil spirit crap. This means, during the movie, he will jump no less than 10 times. And let me just tell you, watching a 6’4 man get startled by an invisible spirit in a movie is pure entertainment. He will also very likely be all jumpy when we get home to a dark house…which leads to one of my other favorite games….hide in the closet and scare the crap out of him.

Yes, I know I am twisted in the head. But trust me, it’s a lot of fun. ๐Ÿ˜€

And now lets talk about these. Biscoff Cookie Dough Balls.

Or as I call them, Omgahhh Warm Gooey Cookie Dough!!!!!

It wouldn’t be so bad if you could have just one.ย But when you make these and find yourself standing over the sink eating half the cookie sheet, don’t come crying to me. I warned you. These are dangerous. Pure evil. And absolutely delicious.

They are so amazing, that Jaden of Steamy Kitchen let me guest post about them on TLC Parentables! Ya, they really are that good.

I used Biscoff spread in these Cookie Dough Balls because I like the lingering flavor and depth it adds. We have talked about how amazing Biscoff is before (when I made the Biscoff Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting!) and even how you can buy it online if you can’t find it in store! No excuses people!

However, I know it can be hard to find (I found my latest jar at Winn Dixie)! If you cannot find any, don’t fret! Just increase the butter to a full 8 tablespoons (1 stick) and omit the Biscoff spread.



Biscoff Cookie Dough Balls

Yield: about 16 cookie dough balls

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10-12 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

These Biscoff Cookie Dough Balls are worth every taste bud I burned while eating them straight out of the oven. They are great room temperature, but the real reason you make to eat them warm. Gooey, warm, cookie dough. There is nothing better.


  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup Biscoff spread
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350ยฐ Fahrenheit.

Cream together butter, Biscoff spread, and sugars until well combined. Add egg and vanilla and beat until thoroughly combined (be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl).

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add half of the dry mixure to the wet ingredients and mix until it starts to come together.

Add the remaining half of the dry mixture to the wet ingredients, and mix until well combined. Try not to over mix - let it all come together but don't beat it longer than that. It will be a dry dough.

Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips.

Scoop into balls using a 1 1/2" cookie dough scoop (or just guesstimate with your hands). Place them evenly spaced apart on a large cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or a silpat. The cookies do not need a lot of space; they do not spread much.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Do not -- I REPEAT -- DO NOT over cook them! These are dough balls, not cookies. You want them to be soft on the inside. If you are unsure, you can check the internal temperature to make sure it's just above 160ยฐ Fahrenheit, which is considered safe to eat by the USDA.

Remove from oven and allow to cool and set for 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet before transfering to a cooling rack ... and eat immediately! They are the best while still warm!!

    I can’t believe you’d make fun of your husband like that. What a horrible wife. You must not love him & respect him. Or else you’d lift him up, instead of make fun of his cultural traditions.

    LOL, sorry I couldn’t resist, and I just remembered that “incident”.

    Seriously, just mail me the leftover. Kthnx.

    By the way, I love light in the spatula picture, it seems like a bit of a departure for you.

      Horrible, horrible wife! I should be stoned! Or shunned from society!

      And the light in that photo is totally different for me. It’s from the tiny window in my kitchen…only get to use that light for about 30 minutes a day before it’s gone!

      P.S. I love you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    HAHAHAHAHA ohmygod. erin, you are delightful.

    brody looks like a fancy gentleman in his sweater! i love how adorable puppies look in sweaters; mine have far too many for their own good!

    these look delish, lady…it’s rude to tempt a bride-to-be on a crazy restrictive diet with delicious baked goods less than eight weeks away from her wedding, you know ๐Ÿ˜‰

    hi at first i thought biscoff was butter but it already has butter could you please tell me a substitute ….i have never seen anything by that name before…

    • Jessica replied: — October 21st, 2011 @ 2:37 pm

      If you read above the recipe, I included notes that explain exactly what Biscoff is and where you can buy it! I also included a substation in case you can’t find it or don’t like Biscoff.

      :-) Happy baking!

    Where in the supermarket do you find Biscoff spread? I’ve looked near the peanut butter. No luck. I’ve looked near the cookies (why?). No luck. International Aisle. No luck. Guess I’ll keep looking or order online someday…

    • Jessica replied: — October 21st, 2011 @ 2:58 pm

      I found mine in the deli at Winn Dixie! Don’t know why they put it there…but that’s where I saw it!

      I have also had readers tell me they found it by the peanut butter. I think it really depends on the store.

      I know others have found it at World Market, The Fresh Market, Whole Foods, Winn Dixie, and some even at Kroger. I think it is particular to the specific store…so maybe save the gas and call around and ask who has it!

    They have this spread at my grocery store…
    I keep seeing amazing recipes using it…
    I need to stop making up excuses for why I can’t buy it. Why don’t I? Because then I’ll make things like this.
    So…I’m going to walk to the store in about 55 minutes (when I get out of class) to go get it, and then I’m going to make these.
    Ok. I’m excited. Truly.
    You’ll be the death of me!

    Biscoff is crack. And that’s all there is to it.

    The only way you could get me to watch paranormal activity again would be with the promise of these…and that’s saying a lot!

    Those cookies are almost as precious as Brody (I’m sorry, if it’s between a cookie and a dog, the dog always win for me).

    However, I will be fantasizing about the cookies just a bit.

    Carolyn Jung — October 24, 2011 @ 11:57 am

    I’m already a fan of that Biscoff spread, so I know these cute little cookies would be dangerous in my house. Can’t wait to bake them. After all, I live for danger. LOL
